    The room was an excellent value! The bed was comfortable with very nice linens. The breakfast was good, but stopped at 9 A.M. sharp! The server was very, very friendly - nicest staff person we encountered! Our room was on the back side of the complex, away from the highway, and was very quiet.

    The carpet was filthy. The safe in the room did not work. Maintenance staff stopped by and stated they would have to drill it out to change the battery. We did not want to be tied down to the room for that process, so we passed. I do not know if they will fix it before the next person rents the room.

    I stayed two nights. The first night was wonderful. Absolutely no complaints other than the desk clerk was kind of grumpy. It was quiet and comfy. The second night, there was no hot water but other than someone coming in late and beeping their horn, it was quite nice. I was disappointed that the hot water wasn't available the next morning until after I had breakfast but since I wasn't in a hurry, it was no huge problem. I don't know what happened to cause the lack of hot water. The continental breakfast was better than most with an attendant to serve, and it was great to have scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy or the make it yourself waffle (plus other options). Oh, and the next day's clerk was quite cheerful. I would definitely stay there again.

    Convenient to Franklin and Nashville

    Dirty, outdated and felt a little un-safe. There were dirty socks left on the bathroom floor. We checked in and headed out so fast, we didn't notice the dirty socks or the gap in the door until we came back rather late after spending the evening in Nashville. "Hot Breakfast" was not nearly as good as most Best Western's we have stayed at previously.

    Excellent breakfast with excellent server. I have stayed in Best Western Hotels before; all were good and this one not the greatest experience.

    Light in dressing area did not work; asked to fix twice. When returned to the hotel; the keys did work so a the set had run thru the machine. It was raining and No offer was made by the desk young lady for umbrella or any help. Plus there was no place to park... only in front of the hotel.

    The location worked well for our college visit. It was nice to have the pool to relax in.

    Staff were not helpful. They acted as if we had no reservations though they eventually found a print out on their binder. At check out they again acted ad if we were not authorized to be there. Breakfast has very limited selection, no fruit or yogurt. TV remote would not work and staff was aware but would not remediate. Maintenance man eventually had to come to replace cable box on third day. Keys needed to be changed four times, one staff member commented that perhaps other staff did not look to see how long we were staying. Ice machine always empty...

    It was a nice room for the low price. Definitely worth the money.

    The bathtub was a little small and black out curtains would have been preferable, the flood lights from right outside came through from behind the curtains and kept the room a little lighter then I would of liked.
